Brownstown planning traditional graduation ceremony


As of now, the Brownstown Central High School Class of 2021 will have a traditional graduation ceremony.

During Tuesday night’s Brownstown Central Community School Corp. board of school trustees meeting, Superintendent Tim Taylor said BCHS Principal Joe Sheffer and his staff are preparing a ceremony with a few modifications.

The ceremony is set for May 29. Details will be released when they are finalized.

"We just want to make sure those kids have a memorable graduation that can be as close to a normal ceremony as it can be," Taylor said.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Class of 2020 didn’t have a traditional ceremony in the high school gymnasium. Instead, a prerecorded video was shared online, and seniors had a drive-through event to wear their cap and gown to go up to receive their diploma one by one in the parking lot and then drove through town for a parade.

This year, the plan is to be back in person in the gymnasium.

Trustee Brian Wheeler wished the high school staff good luck in planning the event for the graduating seniors.

"I look forward to seeing a normal graduation ceremony," he said. "Best of luck in getting that pulled off."
